Festival du film français 2021

24. The French Film Festival

18. - 24. 11. 2021 

This year's visual is inspired by François Truffaut’s cult French new wave classic Jules and Jim, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary. The festival will also pay tribute this year to Jean-Paul Belmondo and his celebrated comedy That Man from Rio, and will join Barrandov Studios in celebrating its 90th anniversary with the biopic Édith Piaf, which was shot in the Lucerna cinema.

The festival will present nine exclusive previews, with a focus on Charlotte Gainsbourg and a series devoted to the politically engaged cinematographer and director of the Cinémathèque française, Costa-Gavras. Aline, a musical film about Céline Dion by the actress and director Valérie Lemercier,will open the festival in both Prague and the regions. The theme of love appears in many of the festival’s preview screenings: in the drama Lovers directed by Nicole Garcia, in Arnaud Desplechin's new film Deception and in the highly anticipated film by Jacques Audiard Paris, 13th District as well as in the drama Haute Couture about the Dior fashion house. Don't miss the French classics and many new films, including the première of the Czech-French animated film The Crossing, which will be introduced in person by director Florence Miailhe.
